York Musical Society (YMS) is a large and friendly choral society, directed by David Pipe. The choir sings most of its concerts in
the wonderful setting of York Minster. It has contributed
to the musical life of the city of York since 1876.

We look forward to seeing you at our concerts,
annual workshop and other events.
We always welcome new members and Friends of YMS.
Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings, 7.30–9.30pm,
in the Shepherd Hall at St Olave’s School, York.
